3 reasons signing Tyson Chandler would be smart

He was a one-time defensive player of the year, as well as an All Star during his three impressive years with the Knicks. He will sign a one-year deal with the team for the rest of the season.

It looks like Tyson Chandler will soon be a free agent.

"I am grateful for my time in Phoenix and want to thank my teammates, my coaches, the front office and the fans for an unbelievable experience." said Chandler. Currently, starter JaVale McGee is the only true center on the roster besides third-year man Ivica Zubac.

The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to sign center Tyson Chandler after he completes a buyout with the Phoenix Suns, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN and Marc Stein of the New York Times. (Chandler last averaged more than 1.4 blocks per game in 2006-07 at age 24.) However, as he's aged, Chandler has no longer excelled in that regard. No offense to either of these players, but the Lakers' defense suffers when they are in the lineup.

A Downing Street spokesman said May and Varadkar agreed "the intention was that the backstop should only be a temporary arrangement".

While the 2018-19 sample (15 shots) is not meaningful, Chandler saw his rim protection slip the previous two seasons. After signing with the Suns back in the summer of 2015, Chandler never got close to making the playoffs in the desert. Chandler is owed $13.6 million this season if he is claimed on waivers. Among the 132 players who defended at least 150 shots in the restricted area in 2017-18, a group that includes many perimeter players, Chandler ranked 84th in terms of percentage allowed - not far ahead of Kuzma (67.9 percent). He's seen minimal time off the bench through seven games this year.

For the Lakers, they add a bit of depth to their most inexplicably shallow position.

This is a win for both the Lakers and Tyson Chandler.
